Kristen Bell on Depression
I don’t know if it’s because of the holiday weekend but man oh man I am struggling to write a post this week.
The one problem with blogging weekly is that there are so many times when I am still dealing with whatever it is I blogged about the week before. This is one of those instances. I am still really just trying to figure out what is next for me and how to get the ball rolling.
Often I think that other people's words can be more helpful than my own, so today instead of writing something that is not authentic just for the sake of getting a post up, I wanted to share an article I just read.
Two things; one it should be noted that I am a Kristen Bell superfan. Like it’s ridiculous. I could go on and on about my V Mars obsession, but for the sake of my career and attempting not to do things to scare potential clients away, I’ll just leave it at this-- she is my favorite forever and ever.
Okay, two; I have written two drafts of blog posts this week and have scrapped both because neither of them felt right. Crazily enough they were both about my struggle with anxiety and depression and how we all as a society need to stop the stigma around mental health.
I say crazily enough because this afternoon I came online to this article by my secret-- now not so secret-- love, K Bell, speaking about her own struggle with depression.
If you follow Kristen Bell at all than you know that she is the most bubbly, funny, coolest, cat there is. To know that someone like her can struggle with these issues as well is relieving.
We are not alone folks!
It is moments like these that solidify my belief that the power of healing through sharing is the real motherf'n deal.
On that note, please enjoy because honestly I could not have worded this better myself:
